I got a $100 free adwords code and thought I might as well use it. My account is set up and ready to go. This thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/adwords/133458-how-i-profit-450-day-using-adwords.html gave me the idea. My campaign will be based on 1 product and 1 keyword. Keyword is "product name free trial". According to the google keyword tool the exact phrase only gets around 300 searches a month but I don't care about that because I think its a buying keyword. The average cost per click is 5 cents which leads me to my first question. If the average cost is 5 cents should I bid 5 cent or should I bid higher for better ad placement? How do you all decide what to bid? My next question is based on this thread: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/adwords/133823-redirect-url-adwords.html I don't won't to build a landing page either. I don't wanna buy a domain. I just wanna send them to my affiliate link. According to adwords terms, redirects are not allowed nor is iframing. The way that I read it is that if your destination url is different than your display url it has to be an extention of the display url. In other words the url displayed in your ad is www.dogproducts.com then your destination url has to be like www.dogproducts.com/buydogcollarshere. Heres what I plan to do. I will put the products main site as the display url www.product.com and my affiliate link as the destination url www.product.com/?aid=15977 Will that work or will I get my ass canned? Any thoughts or advice will be appreciated.
